9 Reasons Everyone Should Listen To Latin Music

Coming from a Colombian and Mexican cultured household, Latin music has been a huge part of my life. Latin music is upbeat, lively, sexy and, best of all, brings people together. Here are nine reasons why everyone should listen to latin music.

1. It's easy to dance to.

Sick of listening to the same mainstream music at parties? Go check out J Balvin. He, amongst many latin artists, knows how to mix beats to make your butt shake like there is no tomorrow. You really don't need to know what they are saying because the rhythm is enough to get you dancing for days.

2. The best dance parties come out of it.

You have never experienced a real party if you haven't gone to a Latin dance party. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is dancing. If you can walk, you can dance. The toddlers are trying to dance salsa with their parents. Friends partner up and just dance the night away. It doesn't matter how old you are, whether or not you know how to dance salsa or merengue, someone will take you out onto the dance floor for a fun night.

3. It's romantic.

The songs about love are truly romantic. The singers talk about the beauty of falling in love and having someone special in their lives. Just listen to Romeo Santos. Trust me, you will fall in love just listening to him.

4. Shakira!

Because who doesn't love her?

5. It's a great way to express community.

Going along with my second point, this music really does truly bring people together. It is a great way to get to meet your neighbors and bond with family. You simply have to turn some music on, and through the partnering of the dances in Latin music, you are bound to dance and meet someone you have never met or haven't seen in a while.

6. It's a look into the culture.

Simply listening to the music can really give you an insight into how happy and full of life Latin American people are. The music reflects their roots, and the lyrics show an insight into the importance of love, community and just having fun. It is so contagious, how could you not want to be part of something as amazing as that?

7. You get to listen to a beautiful language.

I'm not just saying this because it is my first language, but it is a beautiful language. The language and words that come out of Spanish are one of a kind. Something everyone should see in it. It just sounds pretty.

8. It will make you smile.

The fun beats and style of music really do cheer you up. There is nothing better than having a pick-me-up playlist to keep you going when you're feeling down. The louder you play the music, the more you'll notice it.

9. It's sexy AF.

The lyrics are just sexy and will make you feel sexy while you listen to it. Need a good pre-game playlist before going out to a party or on a date? Latin music, my friends. It will get you excited for the night.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
